I had a point when I started, but now I’m just going to go with, please forgive me this word vomit, it’s the Monday after a glorious three-day.
It was a lot of bike rides, girlfriends, pool time, reading, potentials, sushi, wine, a dive bar, live music, shopping and family. Be jealous.
My training has been all over the place lately. I’m mostly following a plan to get ready for my second 10k, which will be my last race of the season. It’s getting toasty in Arizona, so I’m kinda sitting here wondering WHY I signed up for a race in mid-May (oh yeah, to honor this man’s short life and support a few good charities).
Anyway, because I’m expecting warm to hot weather, I’m not psyching myself up too much for an awesome race. Yes, I’ll probably PR (woohoo for being able to say that since I’m now running repeat distances!) but then again, pretty much anything would beat my first 10k performance in which I was untrained and hungover/drunk. Hey, don’t judge, I’ve come a long way in five months!
My knee has been bugging me since Pat’s Run, which is why I’m mostly following a training plan. I’m trying to cross train more and rest, but by rest I mean work out yesterday morning and wait until tonight to train again. That’s a solid 30 hours of downtime for the old knee! There’s a hip thing too. Perhaps my sports doc was onto something when he suggested PT?
My training two-piece came in, but I don’t like the color. It’s a great suit so I’m exchanging it. There are children in my pool right now anyway, so I can wait until it’s so hot that only the crazy people go in the pool (or outside in general).
For my reward for the 10k – because OF COURSE I’m still setting my goals – I’m thinking of bike accessories (Meyer needs a lock and a basket), Ironman sunglasses (because my LA/Scottsdale look while running I’m sure is pretty redic) or going big with an indoor bike trainer.
And happy zucchini bread day! Yeah, it’s a thing. I was going to post the ah-mazing recipe I recently found and fell in love with (I think it’s this one with applesauce instead of the oil) and beautiful pictures of the process of making it, but then I remembered zucc bread is pretty dangerous if you don’t have anyone at home to share the loaf with AND that two of the lights in my kitchen are out and the pics coming out of there are pretty dismal.
Now can we talk about when I looked up zucchini bread day, I learned this:
I’m slightly upset there’s only five days left to celebrate this glorious occasion, but let’s be honest, ain’t no party like a grilled cheese party ’cause a grilled cheese party don’t stop. Plus, there’s still plenty of time to go Paradise Melts truck hunting.
Come to me!
